LETANOVCE, SLOVAKIA - FEBRUARY 26: Children play in the Roma, or Gypsy, slum outside Letanovce on February 26, 2004 in eastern Slovakia. The settlement of approximately 500 people has no running water, no electricity and no phones and nearly everyone there is unemployed. Many residents, citing the recent cut in Slovak social benefits and what they claim as institutionalized racism that makes it impossible for them to find local jobs, say they want to leave Slovakia once the country becomes a member of the European Union in May 2004.
